Yes, ok, it's a car, but oh what a ride!
Meet the newest member of my garage:
My 2004 Yellow Jacket Pontiac GTO!
http://img116.imageshack.us/img116/9615/img1289kd0.jpg

This will be a perfect playmate for my 1970 GTO.
http://img451.imageshack.us/img451/9103/img1286zb3.jpg

This 04 GTO is one fast car! 350hp V8, 6 speed. I have to give props to those awesome Aussies for letting us have this version of the Holden Monaro.

My hat goes off to the GM boys of OZ!

Ooooooh Yeah!

Probably the most under rated muscle car around. My son had an '04 before he moved to Aussieland. It's an awesome ride.

Enjoy the wonderful seats. Absolutely the most comfortable I've ever sat in and I've sat in plenty (have worked in and out of the auto buis. since '69).
I have BAD sciatica at times and those seats are a relief.

Nice going Russ!  bigthumbsup 

BTW....is that a '71 Goat next to the '04? Nice stable of Ponchos'!

I don't normally like American cars, but that one looks pretty sweet, the yellow colour really seems to work well on it. I'm not familiar with the specs, so what's it's top speed?
